Every update every problems

i fix interface networking and it make update but after restart still getting black screen

My next guess is that it might be Plymouth misbehaving.

Plymouth is the boot screen (the three dots) intended to hide text during boot. It can often be more trouble than it’s worth.

The correct procedure to uninstall Plymouth can be found in the Manjaro Wiki Plymouth article, under the heading of REMOVAL.

Follow the procedure exactly, as there is more involved than a normal uninstall. When finished, reboot and see if this has resolved the booting issue.

I (and others) typically remove Plymouth from the equation, even if it isn’t causing trouble, as it’s one less complication during startup.

That said, I’m still uncertain at which point it fails to boot, so again, this may not necessarily fix the issue.

really thank u so much and i appreciate ur time to help, and as u see we spent a lot time to fix and still not fixed so must to switch to mac until at least understand why every update get list of issues, now still broken and must to stop and this point

OK. I hope you solve it. Cheers.

back, i format & install linux from scratch using manjaro iso 24 and after update system with driver card i get the same issue (black screen) i guess the update system crash drive installation, and my current kernel is 6.9

If you posted your inxi at first, i probably could tell you whats wrong… without format your system, if you would use Timeshift to rollback.

There are so many ways to solve your problems… just maintain your system.

inxi --admin --verbosity=5 --filter --no-host --width

You can also try LTS Kernel 6.6 or switch between Wayland and X11.

there are many reports of a black screen at start up with the latest update,you should check there for a possible solution.
seems related to Nvidia.

Remove this from Grub, save it. After done use this command:

sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

then restart.

This maybe helps too, if you don’t want to switch to Kernel 6.6 LTS:

Anyway, i think this is rather good to choose xfce to avoid problems.
Even though i have Plasma 6 since 3 months without any big issues, their development cycles are quite short, hence more potential problems.

i am using already kernel 6.9 and before i post ur comment i fix it using optimus-manager --switch nvidia, but the problem every time i restart system should run again the command

how can remove quiet splash

In /etc/default/grubGRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT delete quiet and splash if present

Then : sudo update-grub

You could also remove Plymouth completely, as it often causes issues :

Maybe as a workaround put it in Autostart or create a little shellscript on your desktop… what ever you prefer.

All informations are already there, what you don’t understand?

We changed the way how Nvidia drivers act on DRM. Seems that create black screen issues with hybrid setups, which don’t use Nvidia drivers for that. Therefore simpledrm, which is used gets blacked out and no DRM module is loaded - hence black screen when plymouth is active.

We are currently in the process to revert that made change.

This topic looks similar to previous topic from 2022

Please see:

As you are using NVIDIA graphics these posts may apply to you. Update your Nvidia drivers and perform system update and this may solve your issue.

the problem at this point exactly after update nvidia driver then restart, i get another issue and the system crashed, i fix the issue using optimus-manager because in my laptop i have two card graphics

Same problem and disabling plymouth was not enough.
Solution for me : tty, login root. Activate wifi with nmtui (to avoid errors like the screenshot in post #22). pacman -Syyu and I got the new nvidia package. Sync, reboot and all is fine.


You mean two graphic-cards… we IT nerds would say two GPU’s.
